There are plenty of ways to get involved with the Women’s Center!
Attend our events
The Women’s Center has a variety of events planned throughout the year. Check out our event calendar or our myUMBC events page for updates and details on the latest events we are hosting and/or supporting. You can also sign up for our monthly email for event updates.
The Women’s Center will need support from volunteers to help with events, outreach, and staffing the Center from time-to-time. We conduct volunteer training sessions throughout the semester or for specific large events requiring volunteer support (such as Take Back the Night). If you’re interested in volunteering, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note, we may not always be able to accommodate volunteer interest.
Become an intern
The Women’s Center has partnered with several departments on campus, including the Honors College, the Gender and Women’s Studies Department, and the Interdisciplinary Studies Department, to offer internships. Interns must attend staff training and generally are hired in the late spring for the following full academic year. If you’re interested in interning, send us an email at email@example.com.

The Women’s Center offers paid staff positions through the UMBC Federal Work Study program. If you meet the requirements for work study and wish to join the Women’s Center team, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
